    Case for carrying 2 concertinas

    Sean, I’ve owned a number of your cases over the years and they have held a wide variety of high end concertinas. I’ve never been disappointed in their functionality, aesthetic or in any other way. I still have a green lined one here in my cupboard now. All the best to you on your sales and your journey. JD

    In praise of a good hard case

    I’ve been custom blocking, lining and adding straps, even leather panels to the Pelican/Storm im2075 cases for the past 6 years. I’ve made them to hold Jeffries, Wheatstone, Morse, Edgley, Tedrow, Crabb and today I just started a case for a friend’s new Carroll Concertinas Noel Hill model. It all started for me on a film job after I witnessed a piece of camera equipment fall 25 feet from an aerial lift in its case and hit the pavement below. It sustained no damage and was used for filming the scene with the hour. Heavy and bulky? Yes! Indestructible in protecting the contents in almost every situation except fire? Yes. I have a friend who kayaked along the Atlantic coast from New Hampshire to Maine with her Morse Ceili without incident. They’re the best for relatively inexpensive protection for your expensive instrument. The in process pictures are of a couple of cases I made recently for an Edgley and a Tedrow.

    Vintage Crabb On Ebay?

    I'd like to fess up. After selling all of my concertinas for health related financial reasons I've been missing playing terribly. I purchased this very instrument on eBay as I suspected it to be somewhat special given the maker(s). It arrived in it's original case, with original hand straps and I honestly think that it has never been played. Each and every note is spot on, the bellows are original, but look, smell and move like they were made yesterday. The insides are pristine and could have been made yesterday. not a bit of dust, rust or anything. I've been playing it for a week and I will echo Malcolm's assessment as given above relative to play-ability, tone etc. As to the number and date of this instrument: "...from the records I can confirm that number 10434 was 1 of 124 made during the 1949 - 1950 season." -G. Crabb I'll post a review and a photo documentary of this concertina here on Concertina.net as circumstances allow. Best to all

    Square Herrington Anglo For Sale

    Just noticed that my lovely iPhone with its tiny print has taken it upon itself to replace "Herrington" with "Harrington" in my post and all of the ensuing correspondence. Wouldn't be getting off on the right foot without acknowledging my not being diligent in editing and an apology to the legacy of Harold Herrington. I work on occasion with a fellow named Harrington and that must have been enough incentive for my "smart" phone to know what spelling I really wanted. I'd very much welcome any and all contributions relative to this instrument and its story. Any stories of Harold when he was first making these square instruments will stay with the instrument and will be shared with all. Creating a a new thread for this purpose is likely most appropriate. I'll do my best to be a good steward for this important, contemporary piece of our rich concertina history.

    PM Sent I would be honored to own, play and curate this instrument.
  23. .tail-less cats & Tedrow concertinas have in common... I do wonder if tail-less lap cats facilitate concertina playing more readily than the average variety. Being a dog lover not living on the Isle of Man provides me a distinct cluelessness on the subject. Congrats on the news piece Bob. Thanks for being such a delightful public representative of our under exposed instrument of choice.
